Your child should be aged 8yrs or over and at level 7 or above, in ASA/similar swimming lessons, to participate in the trial. If they have not reached this level they are not ready to swim in a club setting.  At the trial we will watch them swim some lengths of each stroke, try a tumble turn and a dive, so we suggest that you ensure they have covered all of this in their lessons before attempting a trial - talk to their instructor if in doubt.  We would always recommend your child continuing with swimming lessons, whether or not they gain a place at the club, as this will help improve their technique.


If you feel they are ready to attend a trial please email us with some information about them: their age, swim level, how many times they swim a week, etc and we will contact you as soon as we have an open trial date (they are usually held once a term). If you are looking to swap from another competitive club we may be able to trial your club in a normal training session, so please email us to arrange this.
